say what?

i enjoy reading/hearing sound-bite-ready quotes and other corporate speak from spokespeople and pr folks. you know, the statements that make you say, "do they know someone with a brain is going to read this? do they really think someone will believe this?" it's sort of a nerdy outcome of my profession, i guess.

i was reading my grist newsfeed this morning and ran across a post on White House spokesperson dana perino's remarks on the health benefits of climate change, in response to the Centers for Disease Control's report on the affects of climate change (which some believe the white house played down). really? i wonder if perino actually levitates when she stands still, from the gyration caused by her spintasticness.

"Seriously, put a ball on my finger. See what happens."
